something new....

Assignment: This week I hope you’ll share something new you’re using, why you’ve decided to use it, and if you have used it how you like it. Make sure to include the publishing information and where you got it from so others can look into if they like.

Well, wouldn't you know this is the first year in over 14 years of homeschooling where I am NOT using anything new. I am down to just teaching one child in 3rd grade and we loved our curriculum from last year, so I didn't change it up. Well, I did buy a health book this year from Horizons, but I can't say if I like it or not. We won't be doing any health until spring '09. I can't recommend it until then. Everything else is the same.

We are using My Father's World and this year it is Exploring Countries and Cultures. That has to be my favorite. Running a close second is our Apologia Science. I have linked them in earlier posts for those that are interested in checking into them. If anyone has any questions about those two, just ask away. I'll get back to you with my opinion or any other info you might need.

Well you know we started the Horizons Health this year too.


There are no lessons per say, just discussion.

And graphic sex details I'm expected to share with a 2nd grader. Specific to what goes where and what happens then.

Um, no! We skipped that part of the lesson. Unit 2, lesson 2 no less!

I'll find something else next time!

I'm in the same boat: we are using just about nothing new this year! I'm so happy with what we do use that I'm just sticking with it!

When something works there is no reason to change it just to change it.

I have thought about using the AO LifePac health for my daughter but haven't made up my mind about whether to buy it or not. She's in 7th grade so I'm still thinking about that.
